Bethel News

Next Sunday, March 6th

We read from Matthew 11:28-30 where “Jesus provides rest for our souls.” In the evening we have our annual denominational prayer service seeking God’s blessing on the work of ministry and the work of our hands. Pastor Mike will lead our worship.

Canadian Food Grains Bank Sunday 

Is a week away! CFGB is indeed like a bank, which enables the Christian Reformed World Relief Committee to respond immediately to disasters around the world by drawing on its “savings” – which are deposited by CRC churches and individuals like you – and which usually receive an automatic 4:1 match from the Canadian government (CIDA). This multiplies your contributions and enables CRWRC to develop rapid and significant food aid and food security responses for God’s people in need. On March 6th, please support CRWRC by giving a gift to CRWRC’s account at CFGB. Thank you for your continuing support!

Nomination of Office Bearers: 

Once again it is time to consider nominations of office bearers. This year we have two elders, two youth elders and two deacons completing their terms. On Sunday, the 6th of March, the congregation will be invited to nominate persons for the various offices. Please consider this matter over the next week. On March 6th, nomination forms will be distributed to the church membership, and they will also be collected on that day. The following people served in council last term and therefore are ineligible: Rod Duckett, Henry Geldof, Peter Prins, Herman Scholing Jr. and Phil Tenbrinke. We thank those that are completing their terms: Gord Bos, Curt Dowling, Ray Merkus, Ken Tenbrinke, Frank van Iperen and Donald Wildeboer. As a council, we value the input of the congregation. Please prayerfully consider whom you might nominate.

Bethel Collection Notes: 

The church treasurer, August Luymes is going to be away for three weeks in March. He can fill collection note orders if they are received by March 6th. If you desperately need collection notes while he is away, you can contact Terry Vandenborn to fill your order.

Lost Coats! 

There are a number of summer and winter coats and jackets on the coat rack in the basement at the bottom of the front stairs. These coats seem to have lost their owners. Please check the coat rack in the next week or two if you are missing some outerwear. Any left over items will find a new home at the Building Blocks Thrift store on March 9th.

Bethel Newsletter 

Believe it or not, we are just about ready to put together our March 2011 Newsletter. Please take the time to find a story, write a story or poem, or write a note about the ministry you are involved in. Then send it off to our newsletter crew. We would love to have as much congregation input as you are willing to give us. We would like to receive your contributions no later than March 1st. Thanks so much. We look forward to hearing from you and putting together an informative fun newsletter. Harriet Luymes, Ann Wildeboer and Anita Geldof.

The Outreach MLT Committee 

Would like to support the Big Brothers, Big Sisters bowling fundraiser which takes place at Ambassador Lanes in Lacombe on Saturday or Sunday, March 12 or 13, 2011. We are looking at this as an outreach from our church to the community to show our support and to hopefully open the doors to our church and its programs for the youth in Lacombe (and hopefully their parents). We are looking for bowlers of all ages to participate. If you would like to join a bowling team or financially sponsor our team, please contact Jen Zuidhof at 403-782-6672 or Jeanne Ebens at 403-782-7872 or 403-350-6129 by March 1st.
